Does anyone else hate having a Christmas tree? I’m not being a Grinch here, I’m pretty much just being lazy. Every year Paul and I go hunting for our own Christmas tree, as well as one for my parents, way out in the bush somewhere. Having never done this as a child (other than going down to the local grocery store parking lot) it is a tradition that I look forward to every year (even though I don’t like putting up the tree anymore). I think the reason that I don’t like putting up the tree is because I don’t like taking it down. When I was younger and living at home with my parents, every year I would pull all of the boxes out and decorate the house with such excitement- and then I would leave the mess for my mom to put away after the holiday. Since Paul and I have lived together we have had a tree twice but in the recent years, we’ve only gone out looking for my parents. I just can’t get over putting all the ornaments away and taking the tree down! It’s pathetic.
So instead up putting up a tree in my house, I’ll happily put up a tree on a cupcake! This is a different twist on how to make a Christmas tree cupcake, rather than just piping a huge pile of buttercream on top (not that I don’t love that variation) but this one is more for looks!
